The Enugu Police Command on Tuesday commenced an investigation on alleged suicide by a University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) student.

In a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Mr Ebere Amarizu, the command said that the deceased, identified as Mr Tobechukwu Okeke, was a final year student of Agriculture Economics and a native of Awgu in Enugu State.

It said that Okeke was seen in his room lifeless with a blue rope on his neck hung on the ceiling fan’s hook on Nov. 27.

The command said that a note written by the deceased to his friends and relations was found at the scene of the alleged suicide.

“Some of the excerpts from the note read as follows: “I got it all wrong when I rejected Jesus. God gave me wisdom, God gave me all I needed to succeed. I rejected Him.

“My fellow gamblers, I am sorry; my fellow lions, I am sorry; my family, I let you all down,” it said.

The command noted that the body of the late student had been deposited at the Bishop Shanahan Hospital Mortuary, Nsukka.
